  1. Such wonderful photos which tell the story of our life so well! Thanks so much for opening up your “Day-In-The-Life” Sisters in MS! It helps young women with the question, “What do you as Sisters do all day?” It is clear to see that, as our Constitutions say, “Our prayer is rooted in life; and our life is rooted in prayer.”

    Wow! What a nice job you did Sister Julie Ann in posting a “Day in our lives”. I think we all had fun doing it and sharing what we do. It is amazing what you can find to take a picture of. And since we submitted these pictures, we find ourselves saying,”Oh, that would be a photo op!” Hope others enjoy it as much as we have. Blessings

    Thank you for sharing so much of yourselves with us. Seeing all of you in action reminds me of the years I enjoyed in Greenwood. What a joy it was to spend some time there through your photos! Blessings upon each of you in your ministry.

    From our HOUSE in NE to yours: We thoroughly enjoyed your pictures of your living & apostolates there in MS. Isn't it amazing what the Lord directs in ONE day for each of us? Thank you for sharing. Our house here has doubled for a few days as we enjoy the Srs. from the Motherhouse & one from St. Clare for the ANNUAL Franciscan Care Services (Hospital) Meeting. The Lord and His Blessed Lady continue to gift you with their Care & Protection!

    It's funny how we take our days for granted so often. We don't think about the blessings that we are offered, but seeing them on the screen is a good reminder. God comes to us in many minutes, in many modes. There are so many blessings!

  10. Sr. Delores W. says:

    Thank you, Sisters for sharing so much of yourselves with us. Your ministry touches so many areas of living. You are the face of Jesus there.
    Your kindness and love are evident. God bless you abundantly.
    The pictures speak profoundly.
